deal with the good old standoff here. there's too many unresolved issues that it's facing, the uncertainty with syria, tapering, another fiscal drama, of what the impact of a higher long-term rates will be, keeping a lid on the upside of this market perhaps, but at the same time, do you want to be out of this market when the data not only here in the united states but now globally is pretty good. last week we had great reports from claims, maybe the job numbers a little disappointing but the ism reports are strong, auto sales record highs and at the same time seeing a pick-up in europe and japan, better results from china. i think the data on the ground, mandy, is too strong to allow the market to fall very much but we have to get through some of these issues and resolved somewhat before we make another leg upwards so even with the jobs report, jim? all the negative nelly moles have suddenly popped their heads out of their holes and said, see, we told you things are weak? >> yeah.
